NESTING boxes designed for a particular bird species have been installed at an Oxford community hub.

Rose Hill Community Centre is now home to new bird houses especially for swifts.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) is running a project called Oxford Swift City, aiming to raise awareness of the ways people in the city can help the species thrive.

Part of the scheme gives community groups a free kit to create nest spaces for swifts, including one or more nest boxes, wildflower seed and a participation certificate.

Any group with a suitable building can apply, such as community associations, places of worship, sports clubs, or schools.
